The Maple Leaf Planning Committee is a volunteer organization. We rely on members of the community and local organizations to provide a successful festival every year.

The goal of the Maple Leaf Festival is to provide a quality, family-friendly fall arts and crafts event while empowering our local community and non-profit organizations. A successful festival allows us to fund scholarships, support local charities, and community organizations.

We currently need volunteers to help during the festival for a variety of tasks such as manning barricades, parade route control, facilities management, information and more. If your non-profit group is looking for an opportunity to help another great organization while raising money, contact our volunteer coordinator.


The Maple Leaf Festival prides itself on offering a wide variety of handmade crafts from across the country.

Booths line the main streets of town, 8th and High, and populate the local fire house. In addition, local businesses offer event-only merchandise in and outside their stores. Eligibility and important information can be found in our Rules & Regulations Guide.
